MADISON Evan Plumley and Andrew Farley combined on a two-hitter, and Farley and Jacob Topping each drove in two runs to give Chapmanville a 5-3 victory over sectional rival Scott Wednesday night at Scott High School.


Plumley earned the win after allowing three unearned runs on one hit in 6 2/3 innings. He struck out three and walked five before leaving the game after throwing 109 pitches.


Farley allowed a run-scoring double to Griffin Miller before striking out Dylan Grant on four pitches to notch the save.


Miller had the Skyhawks only two hits, one of which was his run-scoring double in the seventh that brought the Skyhawks to within two, 5-3.


Chapmanville plated three runs in the second as Farley singled to right scoring Adam Mullins for the first run of the contest. Topping followed with a single to center to plate Talan Thompson and Farley to give Chapmanville a 3-0 lead after two innings.


Scott answered with a run in the bottom of the third when Luke Knight scored an error to cut Chapmanville’s lead to 3-1 after three innings.


Chapmanville tacked on a run in the fifth when Will Kirkendall’s single scored Trey Butcher to give Chapmanville a 4-1 lead after five.


The Tigers got a run in the sixth when Farley singled to left to plate Eli Pridemore for a 5-1 lead after six innings of play.


Scott closed the gap to 5-2 when Brady Carrico scored on an error in the bottom of the seventh.


Miller took the loss for Scott allowing five runs, three earned, on eight hits while striking out 10 in seven innings.


Butcher had a double while Plumley, Talan Thompson and Tyson Thompson each had singles for Chapmanville.


Scott saw its three-game winning streak snapped and fell to 5-10 with the loss. The Skyhawks are 2-10 this season in games decided by two runs or less.


Chapmanville improves to 9-6 with the win and sweeps the season series with Scott. The two teams could potentially meet for a third time in the Class AA Region 4 Section 2 tournament.
